Five overrated NFL players who could be moved by trade deadline

  Five overrated NFL players who could be moved by trade deadline Sometimes star players fall off a cliff and are no longer the marquee names they once were. Sometimes players are in a bad situation and might need a change of scenery to perform better. Le'Veon Bell is among the players who fall into the latter category.Father Time is undefeated. For many of the NFL’s biggest stars, years of fighting through injuries have taken a toll on their bodies. Unfortunately, for the likes of A.J. Green and Alshon Jeffery, this means their name recognition is greater than their on-field contributions.

“The sides have been far apart in those preliminary discussions, sources say,” Fedor told fans in a Q&A. “The Cavs recognize Drummond ’s Given the differing, current monetary views, an extension seems unlikely.” There has been talk of the player being involved in a trade and Fedor claims multiple

Cavs, Andre Drummond interested in a contract extension . 3 months ago – via Chris Fedor @ Cleveland Plain Dealer. Do they Cavs like Drummond enough to work out a long-term extension , preemptively keeping him from becoming an unrestricted free agent in the star-studded 2021 class?

Cleveland jumped at the chance to land Andre Drummond in a deadline trade for next to nothing. The goal was for the two sides was to play out the rest of the season and see if there was a fit, except that turned out to be only eight games due to the pandemic.

This summer, Drummond has all but said he would pick up his $28.8 million option and remain with the Cavaliers. While there was some early optimism about an extension, that has faded as the sides are far apart, reports Chris Fedor of the Cleveland Plain Dealer in a recent Q&A.

…The sides have been far apart in those preliminary discussions, sources say. The Cavs recognize Drummond’s talent but they are also honest about his flaws, especially in this pace-and-space era, where bigs like him are easy to attain… Drummond, meanwhile, wants to be compensated for bypassing a chance at 2021 free agency, when many teams will have significant cap space. Given the differing, current monetary views, an extension seems unlikely.

Report: Browns TE David Njoku once again wants to be traded

  Report: Browns TE David Njoku once again wants to be traded The Browns reportedly haven’t been inclined to trade him, but that could change if they get a good offer. The trade deadline is Nov. 3, two weeks from Tuesday. The 29th overall pick of the 2017 draft, Njoku had three catches for 50 yards in Cleveland’s opener before going down with a knee injury.He missed the next three games but has been back for the last couple, only racking up two catches for 13 yards the last two weeks. The Browns like to use a lot of multiple tight end sets, but the offseason signing of Austin Hooper and drafting Harrison Bryant in the fourth-round have made Njoku more expendable.

Andre Drummond was upset about a deadline deal that sent him to Cleveland . The problem for Drummond is that the NBA has evolved dramatically since he signed his contract with Detroit, and his traditional post skillset isn’t valued nearly as much in a league that emphasizes small ball, shooting

Drummond is reportedly on the trading block, with 6 trade deadline. Further , Drummond holds a .8 million player option for the final season of his contract in 2020-21. Why Drummond makes sense: The Wizards pulled off a miracle by getting Bradley Beal to sign an extension in Washington

Does that open the door to an Andre Drummond trade? Maybe, there have been rumors about a Drummond trade before. He provides some real value to the right team as a strong pick setter and rim runner who can block shots and clog the paint defensively, plus he’s a beast on the glass. Drummond averaged 17.7 points and 15.2 rebounds a game last season.

LeBron James holding a microphone: That's a wrap! It took 355 days from Opening Night back on October 22, 2019, but the NBA has finally, and impressively completed its 2019-20 season, crowning the LA Lakers as champions. In the Association's craziest season, during the craziest year in recent memory, the NBA was able to successfully complete its season despite having a pandemic shutdown from mid-March to the end of July and having to complete the season in a bubble in Orlando with no fans, no families and a number of health-related restrictions. Everyone working in the league should be proud of what they were able to accomplish in Orlando. And, as fun and memorable as the bubble was the past three months - and we'll get to all that below - here's hoping we never have to go through a year quite as challenging as 2020 has been and are never watching an NBA Finals inside a bubble ever again.

Fedor’s sources suggest a trade is more likely to be a deadline deal than an offseason one.

Multiple league sources believe the Cavs’ best chance for a trade would be at the deadline, sending him to a contender looking for an additional piece with no financial commitment beyond the 2020-21 season.

With Drummond’s hefty contract, it’s next to impossible to imagine a trade to a contender this offseason. None of those teams is going to give up good players/picks to take on that much salary for a player whose skill set others can replicate (for example, there is zero chance the Clippers would give up Ivica Zubac and more to land Drummond, it doesn’t make them better). At the deadline, maybe, depending on how things play out for teams and Drummond. Even then, it’s a maybe.

Drummond could choose to do the same (working at over million in 2016-17; not attempting restricted free agency as Detroit would match any offer) and try his luck in 2017. And Andre Drummond , despite his convictions, will still have options.

An Andre Drummond trade could happen, but it’s going to require patience from fans and the front office.
